Description

This is the gem of the band, so far, where the ground drops away, and with a rough version of what's envisioned, Valalpin's Via Ferrata, it has the best rock, exposure, and potential. Even now, but better once completed, competent climbers have a relatively easy way of getting on some very nice vertical fissures, without the hassle of rapping in or climbing the nice shale cliff below...nope, just long runouts where a slip would result in a painful pendulum.

Getting There

Rap in from the top, or do the traverse.
